The arcade cabinets will also be set to free play, resulting in no coins needed to play.
It’s not just old school games that Play Blackpool have on offer, the latest indie games in the Xbox One Zone will be playable, some of these include Child of Light, Goat Simulator and the terrifying Slender: The Arrival.
Indie Developers are also on hand to show off demos of their latest games, along with gaming tournaments giving the event a competitive edge. Gamers can show off their skills in Fifa Halo and Super Smash Bros, receiving a prize pot on the Sunday of the event.
